I had the opportunity to visit Guam for Slammed Society 2017 last month. Traveling from Manila and landing from a red-eye flight during show day, my 4-day itinerary was set not only for cars but also to explore the island as a whole. Check out some of the highlights of my trip in this photo journal.
Staying at Bayview Hotel in Tumon, a 5-minute walk takes to me to the island’s premium shopping district. Situated strategically near the bay, I would say that it may be the best bang for buck hotel within the area.
The strip, which hosts several luxurious brands compliments  Guam’s tax free clause. By checking out the prices, I noticed that this clause makes products 15% – 20% cheaper compared to Manila.

A vacation in a foreign land wouldn’t be complete without learning about its roots. Immersing with Guam’s culture, we headed out to check out Cetti Bay by driving down south on my last day.

As we had the cultural drive, I noticed the similarities of the Philippines with Guam, several of these include Ferdinand Magellan landing Umatac bay a few days before arriving in the Cebu back in 1521.

With a busy schedule this 2017, scenes like these matter.

 

Checking out some of the best spots around Guam was a breeze thanks to Tom Akigami of Upshift Ent. Tom, a self-confessed food aficionado, took me to several joints for delicious eats. Here are some of my favorites.

Proa Restaurant. A popular pick for tourists and locals, Proa in Tumon served the best barbecue I had for quite some time. Being one of my last meals during the trip, I can say that Finadene sauce compliments anything MEAT.

Menkui Ramen. A different take on broth, as it differs from “Manila’s favorite” aka. thick broth with grilled meat.

Eat Street Grill. My first meal in Guam – Loco Moco.

Home cooked steak. Being a part of the United States, beef in Guam means serious business. Luckily, Tom knew how to cook man steak!

Dinner with Tom and Lee. The steak was so good I took home 7 pcs of 1 “inchers” back home to Manila. Time to eat some for Christmas.

A view I can always look back to. Thank you Guam for your warm hospitality.

Be right back soon.
